Captains will have an expansive amount of playable content to explore when Star Trek Online debuts simultaneously on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game’s console version will bring both the Legacy of Romulus and Delta Rising expansions, as well as numerous gameplay updates from the game’s six-year history. Each player’s adventure will begin as they choose from classic Star Trek factions including Federation, Klingon and Romulans, to customize their very own Captain. From there, players can command a classic starship and fly to iconic Star Trek locations.
Several upgrades have been made to Star Trek Online in preparation for the game’s launch on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. A full list of features includes:
- New Control Scheme – Controls for the full-scale 92-key keyboard MMORPG have been condensed into a 16-button controller, while retaining the speed and fun of the original PC version.
- Updated Lighting and Graphics – Modern lighting technologies have been incorporated to improve the overall visual quality of the game, bringing Star Trek Online fully into the latest generation consoles. These changes will eventually be incorporated into the PC version as well.
- Improved UI – Star Trek Online’ s console UI has been updated for easy access to skills, inventory and more features at a glance.
